Financial Assistance

Indexed Tuition (K-8)

At Odyssey, we understand that not all families can afford a private school education and are committed to providing financial assistance for our families, if needed. A diverse learning environment enriches the educational experience for all of our students and families, so the participation of a wide range of families is critical to the health of the school.

Due to this commitment to make an Odyssey education affordable to families of many different economic backgrounds, tuition is determined on a sliding scale that takes into account family income and other assets, a method known as indexed tuition.

Indexed Tuition Awards are based on individual family circumstances and are calculated from information processed through School and Students Services by the National Association of Independent Schools and on the Odyssey Day School Indexed Tuition Application.

Following are some sample taxable income amounts with sample tuitions:

  • Income $115,000        Tuition: $10,000
  • Income $75,000          Tuition; $8,000
  • Income $45,000          Tuition $5,000

If you are interested in having your child join the Odyssey Day School community, but are concerned about your ability to afford tuition, please contact Margaret Douglas, Head of School, to ask about an application for Indexed Tuition.
